50th Anniversary Edition of ‘The Great Silence’ Coming to Blu-ray



Sergio Corbucci’s landmark Spaghetti Western, The Great Silence, will make its North American Blu-ray debut on June 5th from Film Movement Classics just in time for the film’s 50th anniversary. The release features a brand-new 2K restoration from the original film elements and a load of special features that will include rarely seen alternate endings. Given that The Great Silence was directed by the iconic Corbucci and features a score from Oscar winner Ennio Morricone and stars Jean-Louis Trintignant and Klaus Kinski this is sort of a big deal.

During a brutal Utah snowstorm, a group of bloodthirsty bounty hunters prey on a band of outlaws who have taken to the hills. The only hope for surviving the bounty hunters comes in the form of a mute gunslinger named Silence. But situations in the old west aren’t as cut and dry where the line between right and wrong often blurs into one.
